Laois / Re: Leinster Minor Hurling 2019

Should be a good team, a mixture of two pretty good development squads. For different reasons, there's a few lads not on board.

Some given the ultimatum

 choose minor football over hurling


Young Burke from the Harps,Critchely from Portlaoise are 2 that would have added to it,but thatís what your get when Hurling is actively marginalized in 2/3rds of the county

For the second successive year we have been unable to beat Carlow at this level.  >:( >:( >:(

Carlow will be kicking themselves,they butchered a few goal chances

They also seemed a good bit fitter than our lads

Have to admit to knowing absolutely nothing about this age group. What are the chances of a decent run in Leinster, does anyone know?
As an aside, that's a famous surname at number 4. Is he anything to Pat Critchley?

Nephew

I would have imagined Ciaran Muldowney was best placed to take on the Games Manager job?

Muldowneyís gone over a year from laois at this stage

Is there nobody from Laois able to do/get these jobs?

No thereís not

Colm Begley should a lot of potential,but he didnít stick around long enough

Maybe outsiders from Kerry and Tipperary might bring a different perspective and drive to things.

I donít think anyone can doubt Peter Hallyís and Jason Coffeyís commitment to the job at the minute anyways

Wasn't doubting anyone's commitment to anything. Just would like to have seen a Laois person getting it or more to the point, I would like to think we have somebody capable of doing it. Was that not Andrew Kavanagh's job? Is he not good enough?

Completely separate role to what Andrew was and is doing

This isnít a coaching position,itís an operational management position.

Best person should get the job and not based on where he is from

The governance and organization of juvenile games in the likes of Kerry and Tipp is well ahead of what we have here.

Is he from a purely footballing background?
Or does it even matter?

Itís an operational role

Hopefully it should tighten up things a good bit

I believe the Clonaslee underage hurling set-up is floundering a bit, and that they have some lads w/ Rosenalis and some w/ Na Fianna.

With Rosenallis!!!,Jaysus

Clonaslee and Mountmellick in together at minor

Slieve Bloom lads w/ Na Fianna underage, I think.

Yes

A good few juveniles tried to get transfers out of SB to Castletown in the past 6 weeks,they were before the Laois CCC.

Na Fianna Have SB in with them at most Juvenile grades

At U15 Na Fianna have SB and Clonaslee in with them

I'd say it was a lack of interest, rather than an 'inability'. They've also dropped down to the 'B' at u13 level, along with Ballacolla and Camross. Makes you wonder. I believe Castletown wanted to drop back, too, but weren't allowed - despite the split w/ Slieve Bloom. So, that leaves only a 5 teams in the 'A' at u13, and 11 in the 'B'.

U13 B Hurling result from this past week


Portarlington 4-10 Portloaise 1-01

Portlaoise minors are also propping up the Minor B league after losing to Ratheniska by 13 points and Mountrath by 9

No one is deriving any pleasure from this,Laois hurling needs a vibrant Portlaoise

Yes, you're absolutely right - Laois hurling does need a strong Portlaoise. However, I would be flabbergasted if the above result wasn't Portlaoise 4-10 to Portarlington 1-1, and that is was entered on the website the wrong way 'round by mistake. Portarlington and St. Paul's combined had a strong team last year at u13 (won the 'B' championship, in fact), but St. Paul's split away this year at u13, and Port. barely have enough for a team. They are working very hard over there to keep it going, but still, I think a result like that is a bit beyond them. Could be wrong, BUT... I doubt it.

Even if that was the case and Iíve spoken to a guy who said that was the scoreline

It doesnít excuse their non participation in the Feile and their performances in the minor B league

Just reading Cheddar has taken over the reins at James Stephen s along with another good Laois man  Seamus Dwyer . These are the people the county board  need involved in the continued development of Laois hurling. But alas we know better .
Best of luck to the lads in Kilkenny I'm sure they'll do a right job there .

Laois can ill afford coaches of Cheddars quality coming to the likes of KK.

Yet another example of the drift and apathy that pervades this county but particularly at county board level

Is there anywhere that all amalgamations at juvenile level can be viewed?

Just ask the lads here! They seem to know everything, especially Clonadmad!

Iíll take that as a compliment BM
